Girl. [lastfm]Taylor Swift[/lastfm] is a comely chameleon in her Speak Now promo commercial for Target. She plays an elementary school nerd, a gawky basketball player, and (our favorite) a brunette beatnik babe.
Why is she taking on so many characters?
The premise is that Taylor Swift became a singer-songwriter because of this boy in her elementary school that she was crushin’ hard on. He liked the popular, “straight-haired” girl instead of brace-face yet musically-inclined Swift. Cut to her laying on a bed of wonder and song lyrics, dreaming of all the things she could be.
It’s a pretty cute ad, but we are kind of tired of seeing Taylor Swift playing other characters. We’d like to see more of her as she is now, as an adult.
